To aid you in becoming an OPA All-Star, and partnering with OPA to make your profession stronger, MGM information and strategies are included in the following letter from Jeff Steckman, Membership Services & Development Committee Chair.


Dear Valued OPA Member,

As pharmacists, we lead demanding, complex and sometimes hectic lives, but over the past few years, I have made a dedicated effort to become more involved with OPA.

Through my experience leading the Member Services & Development committee, whose primary task is to grow and strengthen the membership of OPA, I have come to appreciate all the benefits OPA provides, especially those tools that enable me to better balance my career and my life. Now, I encourage you to share your OPA experiences with our colleagues and convince - encourage - persuade them to join our Association through our Member-Get-a-Member (MGM) program. By participating, you will be strengthening our voice and our profession; AND for each new* member you recruit, you will receive a $20 discount on your 2021 Annual Conference registration fee! Sign up 14 new members and you are in for free!** You will also receive recognition as an exclusive member of our OPA All-Star Recruiter Club. Membership applications and conference registrations must be received by OPA by the Early Bird Deadline in order to be eligible for this promotion.

MGM programs are a powerful way for us to spread the value of OPA to our friends, classmates and colleagues who do not understand the positive impact OPA has on our profession. I hope you will become an All-Star Recruiter. It's as simple as passing along the following link to the online MGM application; https://www.ohiopharmacists.org/4opaMgm.

You may also contact opa@ohiopharmacists.org for additional membership materials.

Please share what OPA means to you. 

Here are a few tips to successfully engage prospective members:

  1. Don’t be afraid to ask! If you don’t ask, you won’t know.
  2. Be prepared for them to join right then. Have an application or application link on hand https://www.ohiopharmacists.org/4opaMgm.
  3. Ask for contact information. You can reach out to them later to see if they have questions and encourage them to join.
  4. Don’t worry about difficult questions. A vast amount of information is available on our website, or if you need help contact the OPA office at (614)389-3236.  

Sincerely,
Jeff Steckman, R.Ph., PharmD
OPA Membership Committee Chair
